For the last couple of years I have been meaning to make my own Christmas wreath, I have had all the things to make it but just never got round to making it. Today was the day that I finally made it! I was off today as had a really bad cold but I soon got bored, I didn’t have enough energy to do any house work, so I decided to make my wreath (and my #craftblog Secret Santa which I will post about at a later date!)
The wreath I have is an artificial one from B and Q which I bought a couple of years ago, the ones that they have in just now are smaller and not as thick.
I had a few decorations in my craft stash from a couple of Christmases ago and also had some floral decorations such as cinnamon sticks, candied apples and berries. I bought a Santa tree decoration from M&S and thought he would look perfect on the wreath. My friend made my bow as I am pretty useless when it comes to making them.
I stuck on Santa and some decorations using a hot glue gun. The berries, cinnamon sticks, apples and bow are attached using wire.
I filled out the wreath by putting in some pine cones, toadstools and some more berries. I am very pleased with how it looks and it didn’t take too long to make either. It will have to be an indoor wreath as the decorations will get spoiled by the rain and snow, so I have it hanging on the outside of my living room door.
Have you made any Christmas crafts? I would love to see them 🙂
